    Results exceeded expectations by a long shot. I'd still play guitar had I not found Strat Talk but I doubt I'd be nearly as into it as I am.

    This place is great. Coming from Yellowbullet.com, it's a nice, welcomed change. That place is full of idiots that spend their days talking about not being vaccinated and Covid & political conspiracies nonstop. It wasn't like that when I joined 10+ years ago. It's also full of users with multiple screen names, which I don't get.

    I remember back in the day when everyone called it the world wide web instead of www.

    When I came here I had an itch I couldn't scratch, I still can't scratch it but it's been fun trying to:p
    It's a bit like having a toffee paper stuck to the bottom of your shoeo_O

    Intentionally one off so if we want to talk about hookers and blow we don't have to find ways to dodge a moderator who believes that should be off limits but it's just how we joke about stuff that might be over the edge on other forums.

    I don't know about the hookers part because more of the guys are married than single and I seriously doubt any of us do any blow. That **** is expensive and subtracts from funds that could be used to buy a new bass. LOL

    i'd have to say yes.
    i mean, i check in here just about every single day, and post a fair amount, and that with
    a surprising lack of friction, negativity, or blowback despite my somewhat opinionated nature.

    Then again, i'm starting to believe that i am actually just a bot in a simulated universe...
    so there's that.

    I had zero expectations and have learned some stuff here and run into some good folks, so I guess I’d have to say yeah, for sure.

    I came here as a empty headed nitwit looking for guitar answers. The forum ended up becoming a crutch to get me through a rough spot in life
    I gained knowledge, friends made, and wonderful support for hobbies I fell into because of the forum and some supporting members.
    Having guitar straps I made being used around the US and the world is pretty gratifying.
    Never thought that would happen, but it did.
    Thank you

    I didn’t really have any expectations other than I hoped my participation here would be a catalyst to playing and learning more. Both greatly exceeded any expectation I had. As a bonus I met a lot of cool people along the way.

    I'm confused...are you suggesting that out of all of them (including @heltershelton and @RogueBohemian....;)), I was the most likely to be an axe murderer...?:confused:o_O

    You have too much class for that.

    I think a chainsaw is more likely.
